"oh yeah absolutely every time it rains just about."now.... concrete barriers block a lane on palomares road.... near niles canyon.directly above that barricade an 8-hundred pound boulder hanging from tree limbs.several other boulders are trapped behind the tree....this next round of rain could trigger those boulders to fall...there are already large dents on the asphalt below where other rocks fell in the past few weeks..but the damage it can do to a driver could be deadly...."a car? it'll go right through it, it would do a lot of damage to a car, it'll go right through it." townsend and rowton say the recent rains have not only triggered falling rocks and boulders but mudslides as well..."after we've had storm after storm when the ground gets saturated that's when it really starts to happen, it's when you see the slides and things like that so it's usually not the first few rains once the ground gets saturated it can't hold the water and its starts coming down."they expect more to comedown during this next round of rain as well..."it's going to come down eventually,

that this spillway has been used. no worries." the santa clara county water district is trying to get water levels down to 68- percent as soon as possible. the water district hopes that by releasing water from the spillway and an outlet down the hill. that water flowing over the dam will be avoided, especially since more rain is expected. at this point, neighbors don't fear nearby coyote creek will flood. five oroville dam workers have been fired apparently for posting pictures of the problem areas of the oroville dam. and that seems to have violated a contract agreement. the contractor working on the project has a strict " no social media, no photos policy". some employees did not honor that contract, according to the department of water resources. some have taken to social media saying they believe the workers are being wrongfully censored.

usually married couples file joint tax returns. but filling separately could lower your tax bill. an example of that is if you're paying back student loans. many repayment programs are based on your annual income. so if you file a single income, rather then a joint income, it could lower your payments. another example is for high earners. if you and your spouse are both high earners, then you won't qualify for many deductions and credits. but by filing seperately you may still qualify for some of those deductions and credits. i have a full forecast straight ahead.
